https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dc3pvLPnWRU

A friend's older brother made us a mix tape, and this was the song that slapped the thrash metal out of me, and converted me into a melodic punk obsessed, blue mohawk, doc Martin boot stomping freak.

That build up in what could be their best song hooked me instantly. Introducing new elements left, right and centre at breakneck speed, fading them in and out and reintroducing them again when least expected this track is a clear sign of their genius. Still find new details here after so many years of intensive listening. Gets me hyped every time. Everything everything.

divaman was introduced to: SITAR MUSIC

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsffxGyY4ck

This was my introduction to sitar music. (It's also one of the reasons why I liked George Harrison better than those other two guys). It was also one of the first psychedelic songs I'd ever heard.

doof fell in love with: NEUROFUNK

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOu7E2ewY1k

Always liked drum n bass but was more into the jazzy styles, was always intrigued by ‘dark drum n bass’. This album really got me into it, and this track I remember firing up with the sirens, pure sci fi adrenaline rush

Over the last decade I’d be surprised if I’ve spent listening to any other album than this and I’ve probably run near enough the length of the circumference of the planet to it in that time (best running album, esp night running). Solid doofcore.

garas was captivated by: DSBM

https://youtu.be/99yPA7K5MCA?t=497

I was somewhat afraid of this subgenre earlier because of the name and subject, but in the end my curiosity won. I saw this album on the Black Metal Promotion II YouTube channel, and gave it a listen. And it was an overwhelming experience, how different and "captivating" it was! A different album from my picture about BM in general - it was slow, melancholic, dark, emotional and oddly "relaxing" - I can't really describe the feeling.

I especially liked this song: short, no vocals, just a distorted beauty.

ars was introduced to and fell in love with: SOUL

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGZYWSfiYbM

My Mom had the Songs in the Key of Life CD and I knew it was critically acclaimed (and I knew the hits "I Wish" "Sir Duke" and "Isn't She Lovely" already of course,) so I decided to toss it on when I was like 16? and the opener was an immediate cue for me to love soul. Since then, artists like Stevie, Minnie Riperton, D'Angelo, Sly and the Family Stone... etc are close to my heart.

minushuman was introduced to modern punk rock

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGfWeOulgHs

I'm gonna go Wilhelm Scream as a band that brought me to modern punk rock, and I believe they were the first band I saw at the Triple Rock in Minneapolis, the old punk bar here. They're probably the first modern punk band that I ever listened to and completely fell in love with. The more complicated song structure (for punk) spoke to my metal loving ass, and it was important in making that much needed transition away from the metal crowd.

johnnyofthewell got stuck on post-metal

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXdCWpgbX98

SaZ wasn't exactly my first post-metal jam (that would be So Did We), but it was my way of plunging in - I'm v glad today to have done this, as it's probably my favourite of the Metals, and this track was the one that stuck hardest. It's not rocket science, but the way they use harmonics on this album is chilling af

metalrain got into pop

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_a46WJ1viA

A few years ago I was searching through my parents garage and found this LP lying there. Back then I used to only listen to punk and metal, but this album changed that. From hearing the title track, I went through all my parents old LP's and found more and more classics(Talking Heads, The Cure, Fleetwood Mac) which made me realize there are so many old albums I had not heard off. That also made me go search up more music, which led me to this site. This still gives me chills after all those years, a stone cold classic in pop.

cimnele fell in love with drumless music

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vkfpi2H8tOE

Laurie Anderson "O Superman" made me fall in love with drumless music when I was so used to rock and funk. guess that's not a genre but who cares

✊ plus the message resonates with me extra clear

papa universe, post-punk

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLiBg4i4BKs

I used to work in a record shop in my teens and this record I fell in love with so much that the owner had to order it at least six times, cause I overused the first copy we had playing it in the store and gave the others away to friends. I then went behind his back and ordered the thing on shop's account a few more times, which is how I got fired (well, that and the fact that I was also stealing his money).

neekafat, black metal

This song single-handedly proved to me that black metal could in fact kick ass and still be melodic as fuck

Nightwish - Endless Forms Most Beautiful - The Greatest Show on Earth
diva, symphonic metal

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YFf5CZSCYM&list=PLWprWK6AVnu7eSM9NzDkJclQ1KKqjrTdb&index=15&t=0s

This is the song that made me first realize I loved symphonic metal. I've rec'd the live version from a Wembley Stadium show that I think catches the electricity of the piece. (And believe it or not actually cuts a few minutes off of the run time vs. the studio version.) For me, this is the most exciting piece of music of the last decade.
18Talking Heads
Remain in Light


DEC 18
Talking Heads - Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)
ars, post-punk/new wave

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6T_X7MXg40

It's kinda hard to pinpoint most songs hat got me into genres honestly, but this is probably the first album I heard in full from both the post-punk and the new wave genres and I loved it upon first listen, so here yah go.
19James Yuill

DEC 19
James Yuill - Turning Down Water For Air - No Pins Allowed
sam, folktronica

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWH98W-YaGg

Some folktronica. Yeah I kinda got into that for a while in the 2000s, but lost touch, would appreciate recs, similar to this if anyone got any. The whole album is great, Everyone sleeping on this big time. I 5'd it and I'm an old school punker.

Oumou Sangare - Mogoya - Yere Faga
trif, wassoulou/west african

https://youtu.be/Sg1JqUA5ck4

This only happened fairly recently. This awesome festival in my hometown, Le Guess Who?, booked Oumou Sangare, also dubbed ''The Songbird of Wassoulou''. Didn't know this West-African genre at all, but it rules. Her older albums are even better probably, but I love this updated version of her sound and her voice is truly divine.
